Muhahaha


I'm shocked it finished that high. Didn't see it on too many people's lists. But yeah, it may very well be the most overrated movie of all time.

Tough call, not because I can't think of one, but because I'm having a hard time narrowing down the list.

I don't want to fill up the rest of this thread. But I'll go with : Forrest Gump, Dances With Wolves, Saving Private Ryan (that's right, I said it). From the 70's, I think Taxi Driver is over rated.

Look, i get people don't like Woody Allen and maybe stuff like Annie Hall doesn't age as well or translate to new audiences. To me it really captures the 70's pretty well.

Most overrated movies of all time: generally, things directed by Scorsese, Coppola, and Spielberg. I say this not because I don't like their movies, but because for many people they are the only really excellent movies they've ever seen.

It's a shame that Picnic at Hanging Rock isn't in the top 50. I may have forgotten to put it on my list though.

Taxi Driver not in the Top 10, that's a shocker. Not surprising is that once again my #1 movie failed to list.

Oh and I did finally get around to watching Aguirre this weekend btw.

Totally agree on Scarface. But Fellini? Have you seen la strada or nights of cabiria?

Oh, I intensely dislike Annie Hall. I openly hate the film. But Woody Allen has fallen out of favor outside of the NYC crowd. He has his adherents, but I think the tide is turning on Woody, as more and more people are calling him out for his self-indulgent films.

And Scarface is probably the worst movie that people think is good. And I love dePalma, but man, the movie is a total mess.

I see it as a guilty pleasure. I don't think its incredible filmmaking, but its fun and harmless, and has alot of memorable scenes. It may be overrated, but I still enjoy it.

9. Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail
Dir. Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones

(1975)
by Freauxzen



Great Britain, the land that has brought us Stanley Kubrick, David Lean, and Alfred Hitchcock. These directors have pioneered many of modern film's techniques and they have influenced countless filmmakers even to this day. But while they were masters of cinema, Britain itself was also a world leader in two other subjects: dentistry and comedy. Who would have thought that a movie about dentists would be so entertaining? C.M. Pennington-Richards 1961 opus to dental advertising, Dentist on the Job, is often hailed as one of the most accurate represen...........

Edit: Sorry, the writer in charge of this review has been sacked. As were the people in charge of making that awful film about dentists. I mean, who really wants to a movie about dentists? Do they do anything except look in people's mouths? Actually, my uncle was a dentist. He wasn't a real dentist, he only thought he was. He did often operate on moose and llamas. Actually come to think of it, a moose once bit my sister. No really! She was carving her initials on the moose with the sharpened end of an interspace toothbrush given her by Svenge-her brother-in-law- an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian movies....

Edit #2: We apologize for the fault in the review. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked. The review has been completed in an entirely different style at great expense and at the last minute.

British People? Check.
Coconuts substituting for Horses? Check.
An old woman? Check.
MAN!
Man, sorry. The repression of 37 year-old men named Dennis? Check.
Bring out yer dead!
A random guy with shaving cream during the Black Plague? Check.
A faulty attempt at logic in the Dark Ages including mentions of gravy, very small rocks and......A DUCK!? Check.
A black knight who refuses to succumb to what he deems flesh wounds and calls it a draw? Check.
An insulting Frenchman who compares your mother to a hamster and your father to the smell of elderberries? Check.
Camelot? It's only a model, but Check.
Scene 24? Check. (It really is smashing)
A woman with huge.....tracks of land? Check.
A search for a shrubbery? Check.
An enchanter? Check.
What's his name? There are some who call him Tim.
A carnivorous rabbit? LOOK AT THE BONES! Check.
And the Lord did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu...
GET ON WITH IT!!
What...is your name?

What...is your quest?

What....is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

It's harsh, but I hate this guy. My thing too is that his movies are some of the only instances that I honestly do not get why people love them. I also don't use the word pretentious much, unless I'm talking about Starbucks, but 8 1/2 is legitametly pretentious. Give me a break dude, get over yourself, nobody cares about your so called issues that you would think the world was ending according to you. Especially coming from somebody that has had two major brain surgeries and back surgery.

I never gave a list because I have a limited repertoire once you leave the 80's. I kind of wish I would have just sucked it up though.


Yeah even if it was only 10-15, you might as well even have made one. This list was surprisingly easy. Apparently I've seen a lot more movies from the 60's than I have the 70's. I think I can say now that my least favorite post 1940 era, is the 70's. Outside my top 6-7, this decade isn't all that deep, for me at least.
